2022 Patritti Vermentino Adelaide Hills – Patritti was founded in 1926 by Giovanni Patritti and is Adelaide’s only remaining 100% family owned, fully operational urban winery.
The historic winery is located on a suburban street, just 12km from Adelaide’s city centre in Dover Gardens. Despite this unique location, Patritti is a genuine “grapes to glass” operation. The winemakers and production team have total control over winemaking operations from vinification to packaging.
The Merchant Series showcase premium wine from South Australia’s premier wine regions. The bold labels feature Patritti photographs and stories depicting the lighter moments in Patritti’s history.
The Adelaide Hills wine region has a reputation for producing some of Australia’s most exciting cool climate wines. With an average elevation around 600 metres the climate is significantly cooler than the neighbouring areas. Cool, dry summers and an autumn ripening period produce a balanced fruit flavour profile and natural acidity.
Light to medium straw in colour with a green tinge. Fruit aromatics of lime, peach skin, grapefruit and green apple combine with complex characters reminiscent of baked tarts are derived from extended maturation on yeast lees. The palate is structured and layered with a creamy texture. Citrus and peach flavours abound as the finish tightens with a subtle and balanced phenolic kick that helps to make this a very food friendly wine.
